    Maple Hill partners with SIG to make grass-fed organic milk available on-the-go

    For the first time ever, 100% grass-fed organic milk is now available in shelf-stable, single serve cartons. Maple Hill and SIG worked together to create innovation in a category that has been quiet far too long. Maple Hill’s 100% grass-fed organic whole milk and chocolate milk made with Fair Trade Cocoa are now available in eight-ounce combismile cartons from SIG.

    Celebrating 10 years as America’s original 100% grass-fed organic dairy, Maple Hill raises happy, healthy cows in stress-free environments on small family farms. The brand continues to develop new & exciting products, providing consumers additional ways to enjoy the healthiest, highest quality dairy on the market. The new eight-ounce cartons of Maple Hill milk provide a convenient, on-the-go option, in a shelf-stable package that does not need to be refrigerated until after it is opened.

    Staying true to Maple Hill’s values, the combismile carton developed by SIG has minimal impact on the environment. The combismile cartons, which are mainly made from the renewable raw material wood, are all approved to bear the label of the FSCTM (Forest Stewardship CouncilTM). This confirms that the wood fibers used to manufacture the raw paper board come from responsibly managed, FSC-certified and other controlled sources. Instead of a straw, the pack features a re-closable cap with a single-action, leak-proof and tamper evident spout. After use, the packages are 100% recyclable.

    “There has not been an innovation in shelf-stable milk for years. For the first time ever, consumers will be able to get 100% grass-fed whole milk and chocolate milk on the shelf and in eco-friendly packaging,” said Carl Gerlach, President and CEO of Maple Hill. “SIG has been an integral partner in bringing this product to the market in the right way.”

    Like all Maple Hill products, the milk in the single serve packages comes from cows that eat only grass never corn or grain, are raised on pasture at small family farms that are Pennsylvania Certified Organic (PCO). The products are also gluten free, kosher, USDA Organic and non-GMO, with zero antibiotics, artificial flavors or additives ever.

    One of the most prominent places consumers can find the new single serve milk packages is at the home of America’s favorite baseball team. Maple Hill is now proudly served at Yankee Stadium. The cartons of Maple Hill 100% grass-fed organic whole milk and chocolate milk made with Fair Trade Cocoa are also available across the country at Publix, Amazon.com, Amazon Fresh, Fairway Markets and Morton Williams.

    Disclaimer: combismile is currently not available in Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, and Japan.
